Cherry Hill is a bustling Maryland suburb that is infused with a rustic, rural feel. The majority of the community is comprised of circuitous side streets lined with cozy domiciles and local businesses, which gives way to a patchwork of fields, parks and heavily-wooded areas.
Many Cherry Hill Residents have chosen to settle in the area not only because of its serene, bucolic feel, but also because it's close to the vibrant city center of Washington D.C. If you plan on commuting to work, you can use the nearby Interstate 95 and Interstate 495. To save on gas, you can also utilize public transit.
This vibrant community has an air of academic exuberance with the University of Maryland close-by. As you run errands or drive throughout the neighborhood you'll see the college students walking around with their books in tow as they chat with their classmates or study for exams in the local coffee shop. If you're a sports enthusiast, you can take the kids to see Division One Football at Byrd Stadium or check out one of their other athletics programs. Of course, your kids will receive a grade-A education as well, thanks to the highly-rated public school system.
The Cherry Hill neighborhood is inundated with outdoor areas of recreation where you and the kids can unwind after a long week. For instance there's the Adelphi Recreation Center, a verdant, grassy area where the little ones can run about. You can relax with a good book or skip some rocks as you reflect on the next chapter in your life at the University Hills Duck Pond Park or the nearby Lake Artemesia. For some friendly competition, you and one of your new neighbors may want to take a trip to the Calvert Road Disc Golf Park.
If you're looking to grab a bite to eat, there is an array of great restaurants in the area to choose from. These range from the African-inspired eatery Swahili Village to simple fast food joints like Wendy's. If you want to cook a meal in the comfort of your new kitchen, you can always head to the local Costco for groceries.
